Dear Dry Run,

I am looking ideally for a 115HP engine. Although mainly for cruising there will be times when it will be used for Wake boarding and water skiing. Possibly drop to a 90HP but I do not want to go lower than that.

On the boat ideally like the seat set up like the Zodiac 550 Pro Open or the Valiant 5.70.

Currently I am in France but back in 2 weeks time and I made a mental note to call you as we are based near Farnham and Portsmouth is easy to get to.

For the right boat,engine,trailer combination will go to around £15 - £18K

thanks

Firstly thank you for those that have contacted me with RIBs for sale.

I would like to re-iterate that I am looking for a 5.5 - 6.0 metre only.
Must be able to seat a minimum of 4 people without use of suicide seat.
115-150Hp Optimax preferred but 4 stroke Mercury, Yamaha, Suzuki considered.

It will be taken to France so a good trailer is mandatory. Ideally looking for a RIB with an engine still under warranty.

A couple of RIBS offered to me later than 2005 have not been able to show a CE Certification. I am looking for a B or C Category hull.

See note below:

Because this RIB will be taken to France permanently I will have to register it there which requires a CE Certification. Does the hull have the Builders Plate with the following:

Boats from builders who meet the EEC directive will have two points of identification attached to the RIB:

Hull Identification with:
The HIN, which holds the following info,
should be moulded into the hull.
Manufacturer’s code
Country of manufacture
Unique serial number
Year of production
Model year.

Builder’s Plate with:
Manufacturer’s name
CE Marking
Boat design category
Manufacturer’s maximum recommended load
Number of persons recommended to be carried

*It is a legal requirement that all RIBs are CE marked.

Ideally South Coast based.

Hopefully I can find something that meets these requirements, is priced sensibly looking for a cash buyer.


























do need

Ribcraft have a few 585's on their website. I had an RC585 with a 1404 stroke Suzuki for seven years and took it all over the country. I thought it was an excellent boat.

I have spoken to Ribcraft and they do indeed have a few ex-Olympic refurbished as new and warrantied 585's with New Suzuki 140 HP 4 strock engines.

However, by the time you add the trailer etc and maybe an A frame the rig starts getting quite expensive although no doubt good value for what they would say was a brand new boat.

At the moment I seem to be offered rigs circa £9-10K with hull about 2003-6 and engines about 5 years old but well equipped to 2010 rigs with engine still with warranty around the £18-£20K mark. So far not much in the middle ie £14-£17K range. The upper range boats have not had the right seating arrangement.

That's a pity. When I looked at their website they seemed to have a couple of boats that meet your criteria. Guess their website is out of date.

Registering a used trailer in France will be a Mine Field, if a trailer has the new "single Certification" then you will have no problem but trying to register a trailer that does not may well prove impossible.

ALL RIB craft sold in the UK are required to have compliant RCD / EU paper work but again new you will not have a problem but starting with a used craft MAY leave with a huge problem when it comes to Registration to the point where it is not possible.

We do not have any used craft within the Budget

£20 K will buy you a new XS 600 with 125 Opti

Contact us to discuss the options
